Product Description:

This work is intended to provide the student with the mathematics needed for advanced and beginning study in physical science. It features class-tested exercises and has sections on non-Cartesian tensors, dispersion theory, first-order differential equations, numerical application of Chebyshev polynomials and the fast Fourier transform and transfer functions.

Review:

"As to a comparison with other books of the same ilk, well, in all honesty, there are none. No other text on methods of mathematical physics is as comprehensive and as complete...I encourage the students to keep their copies as they will need it and will find it an invaluable reference resource in later studies and research."
- Tristan Hubsch, Howard University
